75 Years Since D-Day

The theme for this year’s Red, White & Blue Day will be the Normandy, or ‘D-Day’, Landings, to mark their 75th anniversary.

On 6 June 1944, Allied forces launched a combined naval, air and land assault on Nazi-occupied France. Codenamed Operation Overlord, the Allied landings on the Normandy beaches marked the start of a long and costly campaign to liberate France (and ultimately Europe) from German occupation.

On Friday 4 October 2019, we’re encouraging children to come to school dressed in red, white and blue clothing and donate £1 towards the work of the three national charities of our Armed Forces. By doing so, they will not only have the opportunity to reflect on the sacrifices made during the Second World War, but also to contribute towards the work of the charities and ensure continued support for the men and women of today’s Armed Services.

“The children very much enjoyed wearing their own clothes and we spent the day commemorating the end of the War and learning more about the experiences of those who lived through it.”

Miss Powell, Headteacher

Glynne Primary School

“We enclose our donation from money raised by the Pupils’ Council. We set up an obstacle course with a bake sale. Our pupils had a fantastic time and are so pleased to send you this money.”

Ms Low

Finton House School

“Every year we hold a ‘Cuppa and Cake’ event and local families and residents are invited. The children sing wartime songs and dress as evacuees. We hope you will be pleased with our continued support..”
